What are the odds for OSXLatitude supporting the ASUS UX31A Zenbook Prime for running Hackintosh?

The price (1400EUR) is fairly high for a UX31A-R4003V, but the specsheet is much better than a Macbook Air .. and to die for:

- Intel Core i7 3517U
- Intel Mobile HM76
- Intel HD Graphics
- 13" Full HD 1080p IPS panel
- 256GB SSD

MacBook Air comparison: http://blog.laptopma...31a-the-rematch
MacBook Retina comparison: http://forums.macrum...d.php?t=1396676 ... hmz they're talking about a Asus UX32VD-DB71 as well. Same CPU for 1100EUR, swapping out the HDD for SSD & throwing in 10GB of RAM. Check how





F*cking AWESOME! But can it run OSX? :P

Hey champ, dead link.. find my a guy who have it.. and i can look into integrating it into EDP.

I was planing to add support for Samsung 900X3C as the first ultrabook.
